The Challenge



Seamab School

We are delighted to announce that our charity partner for the 2019 Buccleuch Property Challenge is Seamab School. Based in Rumbling Bridge, Kinross, this truly unique school is dedicated to transforming the lives of some of the most vulnerable children in Scotland.

Seamab specialises in looking after children aged five to 13 from all over Scotland who have experienced trauma, neglect, violence or loss and who, as a result, need additional support. They can currently accommodate 15 residential students and three day placements who usually stay for between two and four years depending on their needs. Seamab continues to support the children up to the age of 18. Here, they have access to teachers, carers and therapists who are able to attend to their individual needs. Each child has a nominated key worker and a bespoke plan, which they help to create themselves.

Joy has always lived here and Safe is warm and friendly. Free climbs the trees and Hope is never lost. Brave keeps a watchful eye over everyone while Calm has an influence that we all benefit from. And Hug… he’s always there when we need him.

Seamab is a place of opportunity, love and support for children who have previously been denied these things. This is only possible due to the dedication of the 80-strong team. We are pleased to offer a small amount of support to this worthy cause through our fundraising efforts and we would be thrilled with any contribution towards this.
